Bake Sale Fever!

Our first Great American Bake Sale of the season is on the horizon and there is some serious bake sale fever going on in the Cookie Central kitchen!  We are going absolutely nuts with our menu for the day, incorporating some new fan favorites and lots of things you WILL NOT see on our menu...ever!  We are also highlighting some great new recipes using the enormous amount of product the incredibly generous Solo Foods has donated to our campaign. So bring your empty stomachs to:

Cookie Central's Great American Bake Sale
Sunday, May 20th
10:00am - 4:00pm
on The North Andover Common

Don't forget to check in on FourSquare!!

Oh Yes - These beauties will be there!!

It's been way to long since our last post! 

To follow up real quick regarding where the heck we've been: Did you know we were the Hunger Message Chair for the greatest culinary benefit of all time?  Taste of the Nation Boston took place April 19th at the Hynes Convention Center - and it was spectacular!  

Here we have our Culinary Emcee Tommy Grella yucking it up with Honorary Chef Chairs Gordon Hamersley and Jody Adams.  Stay tuned for the new TOTN Boston YouTube channel where you'll find some incredible footage of the night and interviews with some of Boston's best chefs!

BJ's Wholesale Club's Salem Taste of the Town.
BJ's has been such a huge supporter (and sponsor!) of our Great American Bake Sale campaign.  In fact, it's because of them we have the ability to host as many bake sales and promotions as we do. At this year's Taste of the Town, we decked out our table with all sorts of Great American Bake Sale and Share Our Strength swag and a small jars labeled "Coins For Kids".  Really we expected people to toss in whatever change they had, but it wasn't long before that jar was jam packed with dollars.  Without even asking we raised $60.75.  We also had the pleasure of meeting some really great people like the woman from Head Start who is planing her organizations first participation in a Cooking Matters class and another woman who has been hosting Great American Bake Sales with the children at her school. 

The big push has begun for our Community Bake Walk. If you are a North Andover business and would like to participate (for FREE), please shoot me an email at  

Community Bake Walk is scheduled for June 15th - June 17th.  All we need from participants is a small table or counter space to plop down a basket of homemade, fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and a donation jar.  Details about the event can be found HERE and a printable registration form can be found HERE

We will be awarding the business that raises the most money with a Dessert Party!!
